Large Explosion In UK's Leicester

British police are responding to a "major incident" in central city of Leicester and advised people to avoid the area.

"All emergency services are currently dealing with this," the local police force said in a statement on Sunday night (Monday morning AEDT). "Please avoid the area."

Media quoted local witnesses as reporting what sounded like an explosion and a video posted on Twitter appeared to show a fire in a building in a residential street.

A spokeswoman says six fire engines have been requested and the incident is being treated as a search and rescue operation.
